  • Players can also sprint this time around, as seen at 1:44.
  • There is a new character in the game. He is an ex-mercenary, by the looks of it, and is also a playable character.
  • The game  will have diverse shooting, more than just the traditional Resident Evil over-the-shoulder gameplay style.
  • There seems to be a large focus on set-pieces, and maybe even a few vehicle sections.
  • You fight huge bosses in the game. El Gigante type enemy shown in the trailer.
  • Normal zombies shown.

  • “The game seems to be going back to the “horror” roots of the older Resident Evil games while also keeping the action at an all time high.”
    i don’t think we’ve seen the same trailer.

  • thanks man!

    it’s been a while since I’ve been blown away by a trailer, this is pure sick!

    this game may change the industry man for 3rd person. Seriously!? JAPAN? Trying to be on the top again? 😀

    This game is more of a horror+action.
    Leon will be horror orientated and while Chris would be action.
    I love this man.

    This is probably Capcom’s most expensive project ever.

  • It’s a no for me the camera controlls look the same as Re5 and 4. I wanted the game to be survival horror not action horror. Yea the zombies are back and there is not daylight anymore to put it more scary abet but I want that feeling that the original Re’s had but I know Capcom will never be the old Capcom.

    • Yhw

      dun worry, as xino said. it will have both action and survival portion. that’s why they have both leon and chris campaign.

    • Auth

      Really not lookkng fwoarrd to this , it was terrible on game cube so can’t see it being any better on wii unless they’ve made major advcances and I haven’t heard anything from zavvi or Nintendo in this or any games preview to suggest that Resident Evil has been taken fwoarrd.

      i haven’t read any zombie boksoso i can’t help you but i’ve watched these movies and recommend them:DAWN OF THE DEADand the ever popular SHAUN OF THE DEADSHAUN OF THE DEAD has some really funny parts in it too, so it’s a nice blend

  • some improvement to the fifth part

  • A large amount of people are complaining about Resident Evil not going back to it’s old roots.

    Key word, “Old”.

    Those games were fun because they were “new and different” but as years went by, that game play became slow and out-dated.

    Many people complained that the way the characters moved and reacted was stiff and of course unrealistic.

    Go back and play Resident Evil 1, and then play 4. The only unwelcome change may be the fact that the game isn’t all about “the scare” factor, but then again, most of the stuff in that game was only scary because half of us playing it were young.

    With this nice Updated Graphical Action masterpiece that they are making, if they wanted to add horror, I think they could do it. All they have to do is throw a few “ENEMY JUMPS AT YOU RANDOMLY” moments mixed with some random Demonic Chanting music and “Viola” scary RE6.

    Me personally, I think whatever they do is fine, cause it’s better than having nothing at all.

  • did any one notice leon strafing? and i think horror lies in scarce resources and less checkpoints.. rather than depriving a guy with shit loads of weaponry not to be able to move while he’s aiming..
